The Fashion & Beauty Tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art
Shady Ladies Tours will present the Fashion & Beauty Tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Saturday, October 14 at 4:00 PM and Friday, October 20 at 6:15 PM. Led by Professor of Classics Andrew Lear, the 2-hour walking tour of the world-famous museum takes a look at all things glamorous: from the grand hairdos of Imperial Rome to the outrageous wigs of the court at Versailles; from gold ear spools in pre-Columbian America to neck rings in Africa and Southeast Asia; and from three hundred years of torturous corsets to three thousand years of gorgeous cosmetics. The tour examines worldwide style from head to toe, including the political, social, and even medical currents that shaped fashion trends through the ages.
